  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Genesis Exodus: Hyundai Genesis Coupe Discontinued after 2016

Recommended Posts

2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

-

From our “You’re still here?” file comes news that the Hyundai Genesis coupe has ceased production. As mentioned in The Globe and Mail and confirmed to us by Hyundai spokesman Derek Joyce, the news of the Genesis coupe’s retirement, some seven years after its 2009 introduction as a 2010 model, is hardly surprising. But it happened, so we’re reporting it.

-

With 2+2 seating, a choice of turbo four-cylinder or V-6 power, and most important, rear-wheel drive, the Genesis was aimed at the Nissan Z and the long-gone Mazda RX-8. We missed that memo and ran it in a comparison test against a V-6 Chevrolet Camaro. Even with two facelifts over seven years, the Genesis coupe admittedly didn’t shake up the sports-car world. It was an important car for Hyundai, however, whose sportiest offering before 2009 was the humble Tiburon. Hyundai displayed highly modified Genesis coupes at motorsports events and the annual SEMA show, boosting its credibility in the enthusiast and racing communities.

--

After such a long tenure in the ever-shrinking coupe market segment, it’s high time for the Genesis coupe to fade away, especially since Hyundai will henceforth use the Genesis name for its new luxury division. A coupe is among the half-dozen or so Genesis models that will appear over the next four years, as we reported in May, but that model will be among the last to arrive, sometime around 2020.
